Investigators: Shooting near Rutgers University leaves 2 dead, 6 injured; more than 40 shots reportedly fired
Investigators are still searching for the suspects who shot and killed two people near Rutgers University in New Brunswick this weekend, and injured six more.
The shooting happened Sunday around 1:30 a.m. at a house on 32 Delafield St., which is reportedly being used as off-campus housing for the school.
Video from a home security camera obtained by News 12 shows a dark-colored sedan pulling up to the house at 1:18 a.m. Four armed suspects in hooded sweatshirts and long pants are seen jumping out of the car, then opening fire on a house party. In less than 30 seconds, they are seen getting back in the car and driving off.
When police arrived, they found eight people suffering from gunshot wounds.
"I saw two people on the payment, so I ran over to them and try to like do CPR and check for a pulse and stuff,” says neighbor Jacob Beacher. “You know, just this kid the same age as me. I'm 20 years old. This kid I could've went to high school with, I could've known. No he was just on the ground, just bleeding out and I just couldn't believe it."
More than 40 shots were reportedly fired at the location, which is within a few blocks of the university campus.
Victims were transported to various hospitals in the area. Two male victims were pronounced dead at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
The motive leading up to the shooting is still unknown.
Investigators don't believe this shooting involved any students. The identities of the shooters and the victims have not been released.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the New Brunswick Police Department or Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office.
